The Wayward Hat (2009) By Grahaeme Cowie

Animation Digger is back after spending some time in Egypt and working hard on other things! This is a hugely entertaining film by Grahaeme Cowie about a stolen hat with plenty of slapstick comedy and a pair of brilliantly formed main characters.

As with all well made animation it's the attention to detail that stands out. Witness the leaves twirling and blowing down the street, and the homeless man's walk cycle that suits his rotund figure perfectly. The characters are very colourful and bold, which sets them apart from the backgrounds just enough to enhance their presence without appearing out of place in their surroundings.

Expect to see more on here from the students of Vancouver Film School as I continue to raid their Vimeo channel.
